Ingredients –  { 6-8 cupcakes }
90 g  all-purpose flour
80 g White Sugar
75 g butter
1 egg
60 ml greek yogurt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. baking soda.
1/4 tsp. of salt

1. Preheat oven to 350°F / 175°C.
2. Sift flour, baking powder, lime zest, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the flat beater, beat butter at medium-high speed for about 5 minutes or until pale and fluffy. Add sugar and continue beating a few minutes until creamy.
4. Add egg and continue beating.
5. Add half of the flour mixture and beat to incorporate, then add the greek yogurt and then the remaining flour. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat on low speed until smooth.
6. Divide the mixture evenly into cupcake tins filling each cupcake liner 3/4 of the way (use an ice cream scoop to transfer the batter into the cupcake liner or weigh 50g per cupcake liner).

Creamcheese Frosting
200 g Creamcheese room temperature or about 10 minutes out the refrigerator
100 g Butter softened
100 g Powdered sugar sifted
Zest of 1 lime
Drops of gel food Coloring ( I used Dusty rose + Teal )

In order to decorate the cupcakes, make a little hole in the center of each cupcake using a round tip and fill it with the cooled raspberry jam; then spoon the cream cheese frosting into a piping bag with a star nozzle and pipe the frosting using a spiralling motion onto the cupcakes in a large swirl.
